The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! This is my first post. I decided I wanted to journal my day to day experiences with living with a diagnosis of Bi-Polar and Anxiety since a Psychotic breakdown in march. Its very hard for me to have just wrote that, its like telling the world your crazy.

This is actually my second attempt at making a journal here. In my mania I become panicky and delete the journal. The whole point of this blog is to help me start to deal with my mental issues, instead of using social media and broadcasting how I feel to my friends. I don’t like doing that and have been known to throw it out there for others to see, then a few days later wished I hadn’t wrote what I wrote and go delete it. By then though most of my friends have seen it.

I hope that those of you that are living with Mental Health issues will join me here and share some of your experiences with me. I’m open to all experiences and not a judgmental person. I believe we all have a purpose in life no matter what color or gender we are. We all bleed the same color of blood and have feelings.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

    Good for you for blogging as a way of dealing with your mental health issue and sharing your experiences with the rest of us. Looks like you’re getting good feedback from others as you work toward having your life to become different.

  3. Well done on getting started. I’ve been a public speaker (comedian) for 19 years and only started being open about my acute mental health problemslast year. Now nine months later I’m really glad I did it. Its who I am and I’m not going to be ashamed of it any more! Good luck with it. X ( John)

      thank you john . I feel like this is going to be the only way I will ever be able to come back from this. Why are we so ashamed of talking about our mental health?. Has society really shunned mental health that bad. In my mental state now I have trouble remembering from one day to the next and have tried to recall if this is the case as I have never really had to deal with it in this way. my brother was suicidal at times and depressed but its a whole different ball game when its you. I really want life to be different for me, this can’t be how its suppose to be for the rest of my life…there has to be more…

      1. There is more. I’ve been in the place you are and now I’m in vary different, healthier place. We just have to have a bit faith and patience. Feeling of shame are very common I’ve had them and Elle has written about them in our blog. These will tend to diminish the more you get used to expressing yourself. That’s how it was for me. Have the best day you can. X

  4. I will gladly follow your journey! And I’m going to share your story on my blog too, to help raise awareness. I live with a Bipolar I diagnosis, although I have not needed medication for more than 7 years. Neurotherapy helped me to the point that I feel cured, if that is possible. I live a “normal” life with a “normal” array of emotions now. If there is a neurotherapist near you, I would encourage you to give it a try. You can read about it here: https://theabundantheartblog.com/2017/09/25/neurotherapy-a-cure-for-bipolar/

  5. Your a very good writer! Keep writing. Our thoughts record our history and helps others with their mountains and success. I think we all want the same things. Simply to be happy. Distractions will try to blind you from knowing it. Once a day try to claim it!
